Really surprised that reviewers liked this game.

Yeah, loved VII, but couldn't get into this one at all.

This is so Orwellian it is surreal. Why is this not front page news every single day, with people being called to testify before Congress about abuse of Federal power? There ought to be a criminal investigation - why isn't there?

The news media are owned by the corporations that suck at the gov't teat. You'll never get stories like that.

The next really big news will be when they announce they are changing game engine.

I know that was a joke, but they actually are changing the engine. cryengine doesn't support their game design and they'll be a year or more rebuilding it to support double precision. the current maps are so small because cryengine can't do bigger. chris roberts has implied they have more cryengine developers than crytek

I was boggled when they first announced this would be the engine, and I still am. Cryengine has a far render distance for an FPS, but it's still an FPS engine. I just don't understand this decision. Maybe easier to take an existing engine like this with all the graphical bells and whistles you want and mod it to handle space than the build your own from scratch?

@ Sho.

1. I think it looks about as good as NWN2. Definitely better than 90s level BG or PS:T.

2. Although I'm not seeing everything that you are, I'm wondering what you're expecting for $4M?

3. What's a game that does this better? Diablo 3?

Also, I'm not so sure this was secret. If it was secret, why did they name it "Gaming Journalism Professionals?" Seems not that secret.

Maybe because Game Illuminati was taken? Oh, that's probably another conspiracy!

Right, all of those stories were op-eds. It's important to remember that. Still it's annoying that they all colluded to have the same op-ed at the same time with essentially the same headline, one which could be interpreted as tarring all gamers with a broad brush.

I hope those guys were just playing around, and weren't going to start shooting the shit out of any curious coyotes. Notice the howler has a pretty serious rifle across his knees.


I'm sure they'd take home whatever they killed. Coyote burgers, coyote liver pate, coyote mittens, etc. They're quite versatile feedstock for humans.

Really? People eat coyotes? Thats awesome. Id like to try some one day.

Pretty sure that was sarcasm from jdreyer!



Yeah, I've never heard of people eating coyote. Given that they're scavengers, I'd imagine the meat to be pretty rank.

It looks like PBS NewsHour doesn't believe in actually checking any facts before posting fake news. So who ordered the burgers & fries there?

Well, they're just reporting what a couple of people said. This is a typical he-said-she-said story with no research involved.

I think it's much more this:
“The majority of us are certainly against hateful behaviors,” he said. “I don’t think anybody wants to see anyone else’s lives ruined.” He referred to Quinn as a “catalyst” for a larger conversation among gamers about unbiased game journalism.

And a lot less this:
Dan Golding, director of the Freeplay Independent Games Festival in Australia, offers a different view. He wrote in a post on his blog that the hate that some gamers have aimed at Quinn is the result of male gamers fearing they will become irrelevant to gaming culture.

Well, duh. Comcast, Verizon, AT&T, etc. always have given more money to politicians than Google, MS, Yahoo, etc. Silicon Valley doesn't really play the game very well.

Oh, come on. Look at the source. It's frigging Breitbart.
"I'm unable to dispute the content of the article, so I'll attack them for being a conservative leaning website." Do you work for Kotaku? Since 4 other sites did the same thing today with regards to Christina Sommers AEI video.

Well, take things on their merit, but also consider the source.

They seemed to have missed the old adage, 'You don't get rich by giving it away.' Why pay for a FB ripoff when they can have FB for free? Not much point to social media that isn't actually social anyway.

Obviously, to keep from mingling with the help.

Who else gets a sinking felling about Star Citizen? I'm sure its going to be good. However, I doubt its going to be as good as all the people who are throwing absurd amounts of money at it hope it will be.
Right, that's the problem with hype. With as much hype as this has gotten (and those vids sure are swell) it's nearly impossible for the actual game to live up to folks' image of it.

I just can't take space battles that aren't in 3d. It's like eliminating the whole point of fighting in space. Don't limit me to one plain of movement.

Meh, it is what it is. It's a naval battle, but in space. 3D would add complexity, but I like to hop into a battle of GSB for a quick 10 minute fling every month or two.

But it comes with a "Cable for Windows".

That could mean anything!
It's a $0.23 USB cable that's grey, and has a MS certified sticker on it, that they're charging $29.99 for.

How do you think they can afford to pay $2.5B for Minecraft?
